Italy: Playoffs start today – who were the best players of regular season?

4 min read

Unlike last season, in which whoever won the individual standings did so with a good gap in most cases, this year it was necessary to wait for the results of the last Round, played a week ago, to determine the best players of the Superlega regular season.

The most striking case is that of the ranking of winning serves, won by Yuri Romanò (Gas Sales BluEnergy Piacenza) with 45 aces: only one more than Noumory Keita (WithU Verona), and this was only thanks to the 6 aces made in the last round against Padova, while (strangely), against Cisterna the number 9 from Verona didn’t score even one, thus suffering a sensational overtaking. In third place Tommaso Rinaldi in Modena’s jersey with 39.

The strong outside hitter from Verona, however, is the best in the ranking of the best percentage of effectiveness in attack, won with 56.30% (thanks also to the 63% recorded in the last match).
Second place for Wilfredo Leon from Sir Safety Susa Perugia with 55.96%, third for another player from Verona, the Russian giant Maksim Sapozhkov, with 53.95%.

Great balance also in the ranking of blocks, and in the end the winners, with 53 monster blocks each, are two: Marko Podrascanin from Itas Trentino and Aidan Zingel from Top Volley Cisterna. The latter, before the last match was firmly to the top, but against Verona he made only one block, thus letting the middle blocker from Trento reach him, who instead made 3 against Modena.
They are followed by another duo, paired at 47, Robertlandy Simon from Piacenza and Gianluca Galassi from Vero Volley Monza.

On the other hand, the ranking relating to reception is without history, dominated again this year by the outside hitter from Perugia Oleh Plotnytskyi, with a weighted average of 5.90.
Behind him Ran Takahashi from Pallavolo Padova with 5.77, third placed the other outside-hitter from Perugia, Kamil Semeniuk, with 5.69.

Finally the top of the top, the top scorers of regular seasons, won by Adis Lagumdzija of Valsa Group Modena with 419 points, 10 more than Petar Dirlic of Cisterna (409) and 47 more than the third classified, the veteran and unsinkable Matey Kaziyski from Trento (372), decisive in most matches.

About team numbers, Itas Trentino is the one that has grounded the most balls (1,491), made the most winning attacks (1,135) and also winning blocks (211), Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza the team who played the most sets of all (88) and scored the highest number of aces (164, one more than Perugia), Sir Safety Susa Perugia won the most break points (593) and, lastly, Valsa Group Modena the one that recorded the highest number of perfect receptions (400).
